In a follow-up to last week’s report that Angel Delgado will test the NBA Draft waters along with Khadeen Carrington, the Seton Hall forward has made it official.
After talking to my coach and family I decided to enter to the 2017 NBA Draft without an agent 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💯

Since the original report indicated that Angel will not hire an agent, nothing much has changed here since an agent binds a college player to the process, immediately ending their amateur status.
Flying under the radar of all mock drafts, Delgado’s decision is a no-brainer in which he will attempt to snare — like offensive rebounds — professional advice and perhaps a few workouts with NBA franchises over the next two months.
May 14th marks the end of the NBA Draft Combine, which means Delgado will officially have until May 24th to withdraw his name from the Draft in order to retain his final year of eligibility.
If he stays — which is the more likely outcome — it will be interesting to see at what point he does withdraw his name and whether or not an invite to the Combine is forthcoming for the All-American honorable mention.
